IN­SPIR­ING YOUTH:

Empowered Youth Magazine - - CONTENTS -

Our in­spi­ra­tion for April is a 22 year old Nemadevhel­e Mushaisano from Venda’s Shayandima Zone 8. A very de­ter­mined, open-minded and re­spect­ful soul full of life. Nemadevhel­e is a men­tor and role model to many. “I be­lieve that I pos­sess ex­cel­lent oral com­mu­ni­ca­tion and great in­ter­per­sonal skills”, she says. The 22 year old is pas­sion­ate about mod­el­ling, de­vel­op­ment and up­lift­ing the com­mu­nity. She be­lieves in ed­u­ca­tion at all lev­els. With her su­pe­rior love for mod­el­ling, Nemadevhel­e is per­sis­tent when it comes to her reach­ing the ad­vanced lev­els in the in in­dus­try.

What in­spired you into com­mu­nity de­vel­op­ment? Ev­ery day I see a lot of things, both good and bad such as war, crime, ha­tred and many more in my com­mu­nity and we find that our young­sters are in­volved. Such is­sues got me on my feet to ac­tu­ally stand for a change within com­mu­ni­ties for bet­ter liv­ing.

How do you make sure that you reach your goals? I take chances, I lis­ten and read books and I never stop learn­ing. I write my goals down and make sure that I look at them ev­ery day. I put pres­sure on my­self.

What gives you the courage as a men­tor? Every­one strug­gles and get scared. It takes courage to ask for help. Many of us are afraid to take risk of vul­ner­a­ble, so we pre­tend to know, in fact we are of­ten en­cour­aged to fake it un­til we make it. As a men­tor, I love lis­ten­ing to oth­ers and help them as I also learn new things. I en­sure that for every­one that comes for men­tor­ship, I put my­self in their shoes and im­me­di­ately find ways to re­shape their ways of do­ing things or think­ing to greater deeds.

Where do you see your­self in 5 years’ time? I am a big dreamer. I dream of see­ing my­self mod­el­ling for big and well-known agen­cies, stores and also do­ing tele­vi­sion com­mer­cials. My ca­reer is very im­por­tant, I dream own­ing my own restau­rant, bou­tique, sa­lon, a hall and church.

22 Year old Nemadevhel­e is pas­sion­ate about com­mu­nity de­vel­op­ment.
